A vision of loveliness for Sweet Stampin'

Good morning everybody

Saturday is Sweet Stampin' time, and this week we have a great sketch for you all to follow.  I think sketches are probably my favourite way of putting a card together.

I make no apologies for using the same image as my previous post!  It is LOTV,  It's My Party - I just love her, and the beaded skirt reminds me of one a friend has which cost oodles in Italy, it is randomly beaded, and round the bottom has a deep layer of scrumptious lace.  I think my mother would probably have said it reminded her of me as well!!

For my card I have used some fabulous flocked paper from the GCD Paris Nights pad.  The spot paper underneath the lace is also from the same pack.  Nesties, Martha Stewart and Stampin Up punches, and Doo Hickey dies and Stickles have been used.  The flower is Prima, as are the two embellishments either side of the sentiment.  Lace from stash, and the beads/glitter on the skirt is Art Glitter Gala Glitz.

Our Sponsor this week is Simply Betty Stamps, where you will find some fun digis and stamps, and lots of other goodies.   Our monthly spomsor is Whimsy Stamps.

For those of you who may have read my previous post about the gastroenterisits problem I have been having, well lucky me, I had a call from my doctor yesterday morning  (actually he is very dishy - used to be in the army and I can just image him in uniform!! OMG it must be the meds I am on!!), and I have food poisoning so have been given antibiotics to help get me back to some semblance of normal - whatever that is.
